Privacy and Terms of Service

When you enroll in a class or training program at Portland Psychic School, you’ll receive an invitation to create a profile on our private community site. You are welcome to create a profile and participate on this site as long as your are an active, enrolled student or as a graduate in good standing with the school.

We define “good standing” as being up to date with all tuition payments, fulfilling your end of the training program agreement, and actively engaged in the school ecosystem by having taken a class, workshop or training in the past 6 months. Students who “lapse” or take a break from study for 6 months or more may have their profile deactivated or removed until they resume their study and request re-activation. Participation on this site is contingent on these factors, but is at the sole discretion of the Owner & Director, William Pacholski.

Membership on the site is free for approved students, staff, and graduates in good standing. 

PRIVACY POLICY

When you choose to be part of our online community at Portland Psychic School (“Company”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) and use our services, you trust us with certain personal information. We are committed to protecting your personal information and your right to privacy. If you have any questions or concerns about our notice, or our practices with regards to your personal information, please contact us at community@portlandpsychic.school. In this privacy notice, we seek to explain to you in the clearest way possible what information we collect, how we use it and what rights you have in relation to it. We hope you take some time to read through it carefully, as it is important. If there are any terms in this privacy notice that you do not agree with, you are welcome to choose to forgo use of the site, but it is not an obligation of the school or individual teacher to furnish information to you on or by another platform or method.

This privacy notice applies to all information collected through our website (such as www.portlandpsychic.community), and/or any related services, sales, marketing or events (we refer to them collectively in this privacy notice as the "Services").

Portland Psychic School has an Online Community Terms and Conditions Agreement, which sets out rules and regulations for being a complimentary or paid member of our social media site, found at www.portlandpsychic.community (hereby referred to as “the Community”).

Please read the following terms carefully, as they provide information about using the Community in a way that is respectful and lawful. By using, or submitting material to, the Community you agree that have read, understood, accept, and agree to abide by, these terms. The terms, conditions and policies below apply to any and all profiles that we host on our private, proprietary social media site.

Moderation of the Community

We strive to create dialogue with users of our Community and encourage you to share content via the Community in accordance with these rules (Contribution). To help us do that, we try to monitor the Community during normal business hours. We will try to check that all submissions to the Community comply with our acceptable use standards described below (Acceptable Use Standards) as soon as reasonably practicable after publication.

If in our opinion an individual makes use of the Community in breach of these agreements, we reserve the right to remove, or to disable access to, any Contribution, and to terminate, suspend or change the conditions of their access to the Community without prior warning.

We expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of the Community by any person in contravention of these terms. While we try to moderate the Community, we are not legally responsible for any material posted by third parties and we may stop, or suspend, moderating the Community at any time.

The views expressed by any individual within the Community are those of the individual and do not necessarily reflect the views of Portland Psychic School.

Any medical advice or information posted to the Community should not be regarded as advice on which any reliance should be placed. We therefore disclaim all liability and responsibility arising from any reliance placed on such materials by a user of the Community, or by anyone who may be informed of any of its contents. You must always seek medical advice from your doctor or a suitably qualified medical professional.

Any advice or information posted to the Community should not be accepted as true or correct. It is up to individual users to check the validity of any advice or information before relying on it, especially where the consequences of following it could be serious.

The Community is intended for use by individuals aged 18 years or more. Minors are barred from participating in this online community. The Community is limited to past, current, and potential students in good standing at Portland Psychic School. As a privately held business enterprise, final determination of any participation, content, or contribution including membership in the community is the sole purview of William Pacholski, owner of Portland Psychic School LLC, an Oregon limited liability company.

Whenever you upload material to the Community, or to make contact with other users of the Community, you must comply with these acceptable use standards. You warrant that any such contribution does comply with those standards, and you indemnify us for any breach of that warranty.

We have the right to disclose your identity to any third party who is claiming that any material posted or uploaded by you to our site is defamatory of them, a violation of their intellectual property rights, or of their right to privacy.

Copyright Considerations

By submitting a Contribution to the Community, you agree to grant PPS a non-exclusive perpetual license to use that Contribution and to waive your moral rights. Although you will still own the copyright in your Contribution, PPS will have the right to freely use, edit, alter, reproduce, publish and/or distribute the material contained in your Contribution in any format and media. This license will be free of charge, perpetual and capable of sub-license. PPS may exercise all copyright and publicity rights in the material contained in your Contribution in all jurisdictions, to their full extent and for the full period for which any such rights exist in that material. We reserve the right to display advertisements in connection with your Contribution.

Please also note that, in accordance with the Content Standards, you must ensure that your Contribution does not infringe any copyright, database right or trade mark of any other person. By submitting your Contribution to the Community, you are warranting that you have the right to grant PPS the non-exclusive copyright license described above.

If you are not in a position to grant such a license to PPS, please do not submit the Contribution to the Community.

Data Protection Considerations

If you are required to submit personal data directly to PPS during the registration process, we will only use such data for administration and monitoring purposes and will not share your data with third parties unless legally required to do so.

Complaints

If you wish to complain about any Contribution posted to the Community, please contact us at community@portlandpsychic.school. When you submit a complaint, please (1) outline the reason for your complaint, and (2) specify where the Contribution you are complaining about is located on the site.

We may request further information from you about your complaint before we process it. We will then review the Contribution and decide whether it complies with our Acceptable Use Standards. We will deal with any Contribution which, in our opinion, violates our Content Standards as described above (see section "Monitoring"). We will inform you of the outcome of our review within a reasonable time of receiving your complaint.

Changes to these rules

We may revise these Rules at any time. You are expected to check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes we make, as they are legally binding on you and will apply to you from the date the change was made. You agree to accept and comply with any changes to the rules if you use the Community after the change is made.

Governing law and jurisdiction

These Rules are governed by and shall be construed in accordance with Oregon law and you irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the United States to settle any dispute or claim that arises out of or in connection with these Rules, their subject matter or formation. If any part of these Rules is deemed unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that part will be deemed severable and will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining parts.
